NTT tablet videophone

Although an increasing number of home phones allow for options such as e-mail or video calls, the Flet's Phone VP2000 -- carried in Japan by NTT -- promises to go beyond these in several respects. It is first of all an upright tablet, operated using a finger-controlled, 12.1-inch touchscreen, with resolutions up to 1024x768.

When not making standard voice calls, it can handle video through a 0.3-megapixel webcam; e-mail is composed using an onscreen keyboard, and websites can viewed using a fully functional browser. Perhaps most importantly, speeds should be smooth thanks to support for NTT's FOMA 3G broadband. The VP2000 is on sale now for 69,000 yen ($559). [via Akihabara News]
